Storyline

Filmmaker Bruce McDonald returns to the mockumentary format of his 1996 cult favorite Hard Core Logo in this sequel of sorts. In this film's alternate universe, McDonald left his native Canada after the box-office success of Hard Core Logo for the United States and a successful career directing cable television projects. Now his career has gone into a tailspin and he's working on a cheesy reality show on Wiccans to pay the rent. In the course of his research, he encounters Care Failure, the manic, drug-fueled lead singer with the punk band Die Mannequin, and learns she's convinced she's been possessed by the spirit of the late Hard Core Logo frontman Joe Dick.

Amazing film!
3 September 2012 | by thebody6See all my reviews

I've never seen Hard Core Logo, and I rented this film from the itunes store due its good reviews and intriguing preview. I actually thought this film was phenomenal, but I should preface that with the fact that I thought it was a documentary! As in, it was all true/based on real facts. Now one could argue that perceiving the events to be real totally skewed my judgement of the film, but I would respond with 1. how incredible does the acting and directing have to be for me to actually be convinced that it was REAL LIFE, and 2. why does the fact that it is fictional make it inherently less interesting? Anyway, the directing was absolutely gorgeous, I greatly enjoyed the mixture of rock music/the supernatural/documentary filmmaking, and I think it was a truly gripping story. Not sure why many people on here seem to find it so lacklustre, but my advice would be, please watch it and judge for yourself! I think it was an amazingly well-crafted film and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
